GameWorks closes at Newport on the Levee

Gamers took to the GameWorks Cincinnati-Newport on the Levee eSports Lounge to compete for a spot in the Grand Finals

GameWorks, an esports and game entertainment center located at Newport on the Levee, has closed for good, the company announced in a Facebook post last week. 

The closing of the gaming center comes as the company has had its business "turned upside down" with "no choice other than to close" due to a slow economic recovery amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the company said. GameWorks has been a tenant of Newport on the Levee since the Northern Kentucky dining, retail, and entertainment center opened in 2001. The gaming center opened its esports lounge with 100 video game titles in 2019.
